Lamb is a music composer and violist, working from the traditions of American Experimentalism, Just Intonation, and Indian Dhrupad. She is interested in delicate attention to layers of sound and their shadows, intimacy, and the condition of the being. She intuitively works through mathematical forms, typically involving an opening from a central tone into a spectrum of tones and shades. At times she works with words and has been exploring the voice. Her most influential teachers have been James Tenney, Michael Pisaro, and Mani Kaul. She is currently living in Los Angeles, CA.

Glenna Jennings’ work relates directly and tangentially to cheerleaders, guns, bearded men, working class spas, the subtle intricacies of identity and the shifting
definitions of Space and Place. As a photographer, writer, curator and educator, she keeps the rules to a minimum and the possibilities at an overflow. Jennings completed her first novella, Granite, and the accompanying photo series, Raskolnikov last year with a grant from the UCSD Division of Arts and Humanities. She is currently finishing her first book, Sanitas Per Aquam (and other likely stories). Her artwork is represented by Luis de Jesus Seminal Projects in Los Angeles and will be included in an upcoming show at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego. She is completing her MFA in Visual Arts at UCSD in a few very long weeks and will continue running the compactspace Art Collective in LA for as long as the universe allows.
